Shangxiajiu has a long line of Qi Lou, a kind of architecture with outstretching upper floors serving as the roof of the ground floor creating a line around the house like a corridor. The history of the houses could date back to as early as Qing Dynasty, forming as an outcome of the city’s hot and rainy climate. The ground floor was reserved for commercial use mostly by small businesses like pawnshops and food vendors, while the upper floors were for residential use. Pedestrians can shop even in a rainy day.

Shangxiajiu represents a typical life-style in Guangzhou, clamorous and casual, practical and particular. You may find many historical brands here for dining. Taste the most genuine dim sum here at Guangzhou Restaurant, Lian Xiang Lou and Tao Tao Ju. Unlike Beijing Road as a hub of famous brands, Shangxiajiu is for the grass-root. Little shops cluster here selling jewelry, stationery and clothes at low price. It’s a place for low-paid workers and students.
